killing floor

I did the work

left it all lying there on the therapy room

killing floor

could see how I had created you

just to hurt me again

by giving out loving

for you to take in give so little back

recreating so much had gone before

& I wanted to tell you

how I’d worked it out

to be the better man

who would be a changed person

saying goodbye

could not take you anymore

knowing I could not tell you these things

you’d only use them to

pull me in again

so told you thank you no more

walked out the door

took the phone off the hook

let the silence hang for a little while

hope to hell

this time I’d learned the lesson

wouldn’t need the go round

once more
